I upgraded (but kept) my trusty 20D and picked up a Used 1DMkIII

First Bird shot with it, this bugger was FAST.

Certainly not the best shots, but my first shots with the new camera.

I also bought a new pair of lenses to go with the 1d, 24-105 f/4L and 70-200 f/4L

Any thoughts on the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 or the Canon one ??

Cheers,

I brought the Canon one after reading so many negative reports of soft or miss-focus on the Sigma and have not regretted the purchase, I got a great copy and love it. I did not even look at or try the Sigma.

Then, I wanted a wider prime and looked at both the Canon 28 f1.8 and the Sigma 30 f1.4 and came away with the Sigma. I have not regretted that purchase either, in fact I love it - probably moreso than my Canon 50 f1.4.

Given that experience I probably should have looked and tried the Sigma for the 50 as well. My advice is to try both if you can before you make your decision.

I bought the Canon one, USM motor died out of warranty. Repair was half replacement price of lens but I was told it was a very common fault.

Similar thing happened to my 24-70. I had to replace the aperture diaphragm which cost me $650. Wasn't the happiest of campers. :mad:

I also debated that... and went for the sigma... You should buy the sigma. (if you have a good copy - like i do) it will blow the canon away... ;)

Remember the days when this thread was active and could add 4-5 pages a day.

What ever happened to those days ?

Don't go there! It is up to us to try and resurrect it, but it is failing dismally.

I found this fellow sneaking around in the mangroves on the weekend

The (former) members who thought they were above Pekka's rules. They learned (or are still in the learning process) they were wrong.
